Established 1988


Barossa Valley

We are situated in the heart of the Barossa Valley on the historic Seppeltsfield Road and boasts some of the oldest vines in the world. Our fruit is sourced from dry-grown, pre-Phylloxera vineyards of the Barossa Valley and also single-site vineyards in Eden Valley and the Adelaide Hills. We believe great wines are the expression of the soils they are grown in and in the seasons they grow. Through knowledge and experience, we strive for balance, structure, concentration, power and breeding.

“Hewitson is one of my favourite Barossa wineries for French-inspired, classic, intensely flavourful as well as elegant wines aged primarily in French Oak.” – Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate.

“Winning at the Paris Wine Cup – it’s like scoring 100 at Lords – the home of cricket”
